Our catalog of industrial vacuums has a variety of certifications issued by the most important certification brands:

  • TUV Rheinland - for the issue of CB certificates relating to the electrical safety standards dictated by the machinery directive IEC 60335-2-69 and relating to the EMC electromagnetic compatibility tests of the 2014/30 / EU directive
  • DEKRA - for the maximum filtration safety standards dictated by the IEC 60335-2-69 - ANNEX AA directive
  • IMQ - For the certification of the ATEX Directive 2014/34 / EU relating to the use of equipment in potentially explosive atmospheres
  • INERIS - For the filing of technical files of side channel turbines / blowers and / or aspirators certified according to ATEX directive 2014/34 / EU in Category 2 D and Category 2 GD


What does ATEX mean?
ATEX is an abbreviation for "ATmosphere EXplosible".

At the same time, ATEX is the abbreviated name of the European Directive 2014/34/EC concerning the placing on the market of explosion-proof electrical and mechanical equipment, components and protective systems.Organizations in the EU must follow Directives to protect employees from explosion risk in areas with an explosive atmosphere



The European Union, in the context of the risk due to the presence of potentially explosive atmospheres, has adopted two European directives on health and safety, known as ATEX 2014/34 / UE (also ATEX 114) and ATEX 99/92 / CE (also ATEX 137 now ATEX 153).

The ATEX directive 99/92 / EC defines the minimum health and safety requirements in workplaces with the presence of potentially explosive atmospheres; in particular, does it divide them into zones, according to the probability presence of explosive atmosphere and specifies the criteria on the basis of which the products are chosen within these areas.

The ATEX directive 2014/34 / EU was implemented in Italy with Legislative Decree 85 of 19 May 2016 and applies to products put on the market and / or in service from 20 April 2016. The ATEX 99/92 / EC directive and was implemented in Italy with Legislative Decree 233/03, which entered into force on 10 September 2003. The subsequent Legislative Decree 81/08 of 9 April 2008 (in particular title XI - Protection from explosive atmospheres) and its updating (Legislative Decree 106/2009 of 3/08/09, effective from 20 August) passed the Legislative Decree 233/03.


Areas in which ATEX certification is required

ATEX certification is increasingly required in many sectors.

By defining the basic health and safety requirements in the workplace, it is important also that the machines selected for industrial suction comply with ATEX certification.

This attention is particularly high in the following sectors and areas of production: chemical and pharmaceutical industries, oil and gas refineries, automotive and aerospace, airports and aircraft maintenance, military, industrial mills and furnaces, coal and nuclear plants, feed mills, wood, engineering and 3D printing with the use of metal powders, waste management plants, paints.
